There is something really nasty going around New Orleans lately. Nearly everybody I know is coughing, wheezing, sneezing, and generally feeling like crap. Your blogger was down for three weeks in this condition and incapable of posting anything you might want to read.
I swear the only thing that restored me was a plate of Dr. No's Radioactive Sushi at a Japanese restaurant several hundred miles north of the center of infection. If you've suffered enough and desperately seek a cure, I will reveal the location.
Meanwhile, it's great to be back, dear readers!
